News from Denmark

Thursday's elections in Denmark were disappointing if, like me, you wish all strains of ethno-tribalist modus operandi well. In a high turnout, the national conservative and populist Danish Peoples Party fell back from 14% of the vote in 2007 to twelve - down 43,000 votes to 436,000 and dropping 3 seats to 22 in the Folketing. Not knowing the ins and outs of the mainstream political scene in Denmark, your Editor assumes this dip in fortunes is down to either a) the rough and tumble of bourgeois political life - how did DPP elected representatives perform in public office and were voters punishing them for supporting the coalition? Or b) a possible Breivik effect. Not wishing to belittle the appalling loss of human life, like others I feared that horrible day in July would result in a backlash against nationalism across Europe. And of course the trouble with taking the electoral path is that you sometimes win and find that you cannot legislate your programme and as a consequence let your voters down - Electoralism for nationalists should be about getting results where you can, but first and foremost it is to bang the drum and get the nationalist alternative out there.

The Socialist Peoples Party, affiliated to the left-liberal Global Greens also lost ground dropping from 13% four years ago to nine. Big winners were the Red-Green Alliance - made up of several hard-left Marxist/Trotskyite groups. Their share lept from 75,000 (2% and four seats) to 237,000 (6.7% and twelve). Along with trying to get in with the Muslim diaspora, the Left across Europe have pretty much successfully grabbed control of the Green movement. Despite some notible exceptions the Left have exercised dominance over the Green label and brand since the late 1980s. But the Green movements that sprang up in the 60s and 70s had no such afflictions. Instead of reflecting cultural Marxist agendas, Green ideas were just that - Green: Regionalist, localist, ecological and promoted simple living and technology. In fact the pioneers of the Green movement and their ideas had far more in common with radical nationalist thinking than the left: ruralism, agrarianism and small scale economies...

Back to Denmark: We Ethno-Tribalists should always take stock of how the Euronationalist mainstream do. The nationalist vote indicates how many among our folk approve of ethnocentric sentiment. In turn, what percentage of nationalist voters will approve of our radical nationalist worldview? Where should we concentrate our work? How many potential fellow travellers are there? How many potential National Anarchist pioneers are out there? Should we concentrate on areas where the nationalist vote is highest? Surely we need numbers before we can progress?

 Of course, as elsewhere the parties of neo-liberalism and Globalism came out on top, surprise surprise. Why is this? One obvious conclusion is that the majority are quite satisfied with the Status Quo. They like cosmopolitanism, multiculturalism, liberal values. Okay, if that's the case leave them to it. Should we National Anarchists and radical nationalists aim to drop out? Work toward getting away from their Tower of Babel and establish radical nationalist lifestyles, preferably on our own land where we can practice what we preach? If yes, no doubt sometimes we'll be in for a raw and tough old time of it, but we will be together and we could live our ideals.
